I play a lot of internet games.. and usually my ping is fine..
but when another pc in my house uses the internet(msn,webcams etc)
my ping goes up and down from around 50 to 100+ all the time..
it makes it impossible to play..
i was told this isnt normal..
does anyone have any suggestions?

monitor what the other pc is doing,,has the other pc been scanned for viruse etc
www,trendmicro.com and mailware www.ewido.com.
monitor network via task manager and let us know what the outcome is.also i would scan your pc too.
how long has this been going on for, what has changed since
